@teebling just to clarify, teeb, this isn’t anything against the forum— I love barrens.chat. I just hate having a write up with my name on it with so much wrong in hindsight (every piece of information provided for drop rates for the grind targets are almost certainly wrong due to inaccurate databases) and due to changes for Classic.

Honestly I’d prefer to take it down as there’s no way I’ll have time to work on this with no intent to play Mage for Classic

Great guide! Two pieces of feedback:
1. I would add Nightbane Vile Fangs as a prime AOE spot for levels 28-32. Not very contested, this was a great spot for me to practice my AOE early. https://classicdb.ch/?npc=206
2. I recommend only 2/3 points in Improved Blizzard. The 65% slow is nice, but it does not last very long, and it overwrites the much longer 50% slow from COC. Leaving Improved Blizzard at 2/3 results in a 50% slow that does not overwrite COC.

Woops sorry I just realized you guys reacted to my post :P
I'm glad to help you sorting things out, have fun testing anything you want to do on your server, this is a true gift :P
I'd like to adress this though:Jpy wrote: ↑4 months agoit’s difficult to speculate on how exactly DM:E will be managed for Classic but I’d assume they’d stay as close to possible to the original scripting.
Well we do know how this instance will be scripted, it will be 100% Blizzard as Blizzard will use the backed up code of 1.12 from 2006 :P

Dire Maul: East
Ideal Professions: Herbalism (nodes)
This will be the place to be as a Mage pre ZG and you can start here as early as 52 with little issue. As with Maraudon pulls, at lower levels you should try to avoid doing more than 2 packs at a time. There is a potential bonus Dusty Tome near the Southwest corner of the bottom level where the mobs are. You can see me check for it with my cursor at 2:37 in the video below.

So I did a thing..
A few notes on my time 1-60:
/played at ding: ~7 days, 20 hours
Gold for mount @ 40, gold for epic mount @ 60
first ever classic 60 for me
I think sub 5 days is perfectly reasonable for Mage as I spent a lot of time investigating farming spots (as you can see..) and some time/gold was definitely wasted.
I have a good ~15 spots to sort through and potentially add now that I'm done leveling and I intend to add videos for each spot.
Keep an eye out!
